Abstract:

How does reading fiction affect young people? How can they transfer fictional
experience into real life? Why do they care about fictional characters? How
does fiction enhance young people's sense of self-hood? Supported by cognitive
psychology and brain research, this ground-breaking book is the first study of
young readers' cognitive and emotional engagement with fiction. It explores
how fiction stimulates perception, attention, imagination and other cognitive
activity, and opens radically new ways of thinking about literature for young
readers. Examining a wide range of texts for a young audience, from
picturebooks to young adult novels, the combination of cognitive criticism and
children’s literature theory also offers significant insights for literary
studies beyond the scope of children’s fiction. An important milestone in
cognitive criticism, the book provides convincing evidence that reading
fiction is indispensable for young people’s intellectual, emotional and social
maturation.
